Full description
Enjoy a geothermal bathing retreat for up to 4 hours at Priest and Rachel Springs nestled on the shores of Lake Rotorua. The hot springs is renowned for its healing waters and soul-soothing therapies. You'll discover why people have flocked to these waters since the 1800s. There is also a cold plunge pool, geothermal recliners, a reflexology walk, and deluxe changing rooms.

The therapeutic waters in the hot pools at this spa come from two different natural springs. The slightly acidic Priest Spring is named after Father Mahoney, a Catholic Priest who was cured of his crippling arthritis by bathing in the waters in 1878 and is good for relieving tired muscles, aches, and pains. The Rachel Spring is a source of alkaline water, which features the antiseptic action of sodium silicate and nourishes the skin.
